Also veggie trays were really good too for snackies.

I loved it because she would bring one over and it would last us quite a few nights then bring the other ones over.

Just saved this!! Not only is it good for soon to be parents, but others as well!

I'm about to do "recovery meals" for four mamas. I'll buy....

4 whole fryer chickens, 4 small pouches of instant potatoes, 4 bags of frozen peas, 2 bags of wide noodles, 2 bags of frozen sliced carrots, 1 pack of celery, and 1 box of saltines (with 4 sleeves of crackers inside), chicken bullion cubes.

Then at home I'll divide the noodles into four 1-quart Ziploc bags, wash and slice the celery, and divide the carrots and celery into four 1-quart Ziploc bags.

Then I'll pack each family a bag with a frozen chicken, 1 pouch potatoes, 1 bag peas, 1 bag noodles, 1 bag carrots and celery, and 1 sleeve of saltines and a bullion cube.

Lastly, I'll attach the following tag...


Here’s something to help you as you get back on your feet!

You’ll find in this bag…

1 whole chicken
1 chicken bullion cube
1 bag instant potatoes
1 bag frozen peas
1 Ziploc bag wide noodles
1 Ziploc bag sliced carrots & celery
1 sleeve saltine crackers

Day One
Put the frozen chicken in a crock pot in the morning (or bake on 350 for 1-1/2 hours).
Add 1 cup water and sprinkle with seasoning salt & pepper.
Cook all day on low.
30 minutes before dinner, prepare potatoes and steam peas.
Serve white meat chicken with veggies.
Save remaining meat for the second day.

Day Two
30 minutes before dinner make 8 cups of chicken broth.
Bring broth to a boil over medium heat.
Add noodles, leftover chicken, and veggies and boil 10 minutes.
When the noodles and veggies are tender turn the off heat.
Serve with crackers.

These recipes assume that you have a crock pot and chicken broth on hand. If not, contact me for alternate instructions!

Name (phone number)


You could also do this and keep one of the four "sets" of food for your own family! (oh and the alternate instructions are to bake the chicken in the oven instead, and then I just bring them chicken broth if they don't have it)
